I would say my greeting cards look a lot like the tags I make, or a journal page, for that matter. Here I have assembled one using a hand-cut botanical print, a Found Relative and some Collage Paper (Tim Holtz) onto a book page stamped with a French postage mark. I machine-stitched a border and embellished it with 3D paint (Liquid Pearls).
Everything was tinted with Distress inks and I used a watered-down layer of off-white paint over the girls dresses to change their appearance.
I think a key element in this composition is the addition of dark shading behind the girls which gives it some dimension. And it was mounted onto a kraft paper card base which reinforces the vintage vibe.
As always, I hope this post finds you well and happy and I appreciate your visit.
Until next time, take care.
